Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have returned to Vancouver.
After a solo stopover in Washington where the Brit actor met up with friends for dinner at The Majestic on April 28, Kristen Stewart and Pattinson were both spotted at Vancouver International airport on Sunday afternoon (April 29).
Actors Michael Sheen and Ashley Greene have also joined the (on and off-screen) couple and it’s possible more Breaking Dawn Part 2 cast members will be part of director Bill Condon’s recall.
As per Condon’s announcement on April 14 that he would be filming “additional shots” and some “last tiny pieces” for BD2, the returning cast, Condon, cinematographer Guillermo Navarro and various crew are only expected to remain in Vancouver for a few days. Although the term “reshoots” is being bandied about in most media reports, the actual reason for the recall is a little less dramatic.
What’s happening this time are pickup shots and additional photography work not completed by the second unit crew the first time round. To ensure continuity with his character ‘Edward Cullen’, Pattinson will likely be wearing either a full wig or additional hair pieces, as well as the gold contact lenses he famously said he “wanted to burn” whenever shooting finished.
For Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, this is a particularly busy time for their careers. Kristen will shortly debut as Snow White in Snow White and The Huntsman. Also starring Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Clafin, the dark fairytale epic opens in theaters onJune 1. The actress will also appear in On The Road later this year. Adapted from Jack Kerouac’s beat generation novel, the film’s impressive ensemble cast includes Sam Riley, Steve Buscemi, Viggo Mortensen, Tom Sturridge, Kirsten Dunst and Garrett Hedlund.
Robert Pattinson also has a bulging promotion diary this year. Lead in the forthcoming David Cronenberg directed Cosmopolis, the surreal shocker features a thoroughly international roll call of actors such as: Juliet Binoche, Mathieu Amalric, Jay Baruchel, Samantha Morton and Sarah Gadon. Cosmopolis opens across Europe and other territories from May 25. U.S audiences will also soon get a chance to see Pattinson in the lusty period drama, Bel Ami. Co-starring Uma Thurman, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Christina Ricci, Bel Ami will be available on VOD from May 4, and opens in selected theaters in the U.S on June 8.
With the Cannes Film Festival looming – where both Cosmopolis and On the Road will compete in competition – in some ways, even though it’s work, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart may well consider their return to Vancouver as the calm before a very perfect storm.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 hits theaters on November 16.
